new Brenspeed tune-45 hp

Brenspeed says now they have a tune that will give 45hp instanly on the 2011 GT--Anyone seen this or tryed it? For $75, it sounds like a great deal

Remember, $75 is for the tune e-mailed to you. Then you need their SCT X3 tuner to load it into your car.

Seems like this is a deal for those that have already done business with them, and already own the $379 programmer.

IIRC, Any SCT X3/SF3 can load any vendors SCT tune files... You should not need their specific X3 device, if you already own a X3/SF3.

Fairly certain most of the #8's came from BAMA and LUND.... We know BAMA resolved any possible issues on their end.... Brenspeed has never been mentioned.....

45 to the wheels?! What kind of crazy timing would they have to be running? I wouldn't trust a tune like that for any sort of longevity.:nogrinner

Brenspeed has been tuning Mustangs for a long time and has a great record with the 5.0 Coyote engine, this tune is nothing new. Most people are seeing between 30-50hp at the wheels with tunes, some of that is peak-to-peak and some of those gains are under the curve.

This is all correct.. But I still think Brenspeed is trying to get in my pockets$$$...

Torque matters, not horsepower. How additional torque is Brenspeed advertising?

Horsepower is merely a calculation from torque and RPM so if RPMS are held constant, torque will go up with horsepower.

Horsepower = (Torque X RPM)/5252

They all matter.

I'm sure this is older but here is a 3 minute video from StangTV about Brenspeed and their tune.
